exfoliate! It does seem to help, as I suppose you're getting rid of the dead/dull skin cells.

do you exfoliate enough? I have found since i hit my mid twenties that I need to exfoliate at least once a week or I go grey and flaky!

Also, a touch of pinkish bronzer really gives a glow.

also Clarins 'Beauty Flash Balm' is good for tightening and making feel glowy

I exfoliate twice a week on my (beauty therapist) sister's advice. Also a mask can give you a glow.

Clarins have a section on \link{"Radiance Boosters"} if you have some spare cash. Fancy the Morning Cream myself :)

Drink lots of water

l'oreal micro dermabrasion kit, works a trest, use 2-3 x a week, buy a good light cleanser - don't use soap - nivea range is good, a wipe off cleanser type.

Be 25, sleep a lot, drink a lot of water, don't have children :) I'd kill to look 35 too...

Wow, it must be AWFUL to look 35 Grin !!!!! Just wait until you are 38 darling! I think, as someone said below, the old bronzer helps (although beware of putting it on with a heavy hand!) - plus lots and lots of water and a good night's sleep (HA HA!)
